All our hand sewing machines have a thorough overhaul to ensure that they are able to withstand the daily use and dusty conditions in Africa that they may be working in.
Electric machines must have a full electrical check by a qualified electrician before we consider them safe to send.
A comprehensive sewing machine refurbishing manual has been produced. This is a valuable training tool and reference work for refurbishers.
Our machines are usually sent to women, who may not have access to cash to buy the initial fabric and threads. So with every sewing kit we also send a start-up kit of assorted haberdashery items.
If you are interested in becoming a sewing machine refurbisher please contact Jo Bush.
